Sprint entering 3G netbooks with Dell

Sprint is on the verge of launching its own netbook deals with a model of its own, a source says today. The same insider that accurately leaked the provider's Any Mobile, Any Time plan now says a version of the Dell Mini 10 with built-in 3G data will sell through Sprint for $199 after factoring in a two-year data contract and a $100 up-front rebate. TechVi hears the system will ship November 1st and have the familiar 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive of the Mini 10v.

The rollout is believed to be part of a larger netbook plan that will see the option deploy first in Baltimore, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Phoenix and San Francisco. WiMAX won't be part of the plan as only Baltimore should have the 4G service in the near future.

Sprint is comparatively late to netbooks as AT&T and Verizon are both carrying multiple models.
